AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Demographics, population trends, baby boomers, spatial statistics, epidemiology, geographic centers

Peter A. Rogerson is an expert on demographics and population change.

He has studied the mobility of the U.S. population, with one area of interest being on baby boomers and how members of this generation have migrated and clustered within the United States. He has also applied his expertise to the field of health and medicine, examining the impact of geography and other factors on the incidence of diseases including breast cancer.

More recently, Rogerson has focused on developing new methods for the quick detection of newly emergent clusters in geographic data (for example, how does one determine as quickly as possible whether there is a new cluster of crime or disease?).

In unrelated work, he has created a new technique for identifying the geographic center of an irregularly shaped region, such as a continent, country or state.
